As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Ring Names... Tuesday, March 5

To add some extra fun into my coaching, I now call my clients my fighters and, being that they're fighters, I've started to make up ring names for each and every one of them.  Some of them I've really hit the nail on the head with creating a ring name that's so bang on appropriate.  

Back in Canada, when I also was training clients, I had created names for them too.

Some of their ring names included the following:
"Baby Beast" Aileen
"Give-them-Hell" Halima
"Lethal Lindsey"
"The Crossjab Cat" Cathy
Carmel "The Killer Camelion"
"Mama Punch" Deqa
"Razor Raq" Raquyyah

My Tips for making a ring name:
1.  Try using the same letter of either their first name or last name.
2.  If possible, try using part of their name, like "The Crossjab Cat" Cathy.
3.  Make the name appropriate to them as a fighter and their style of fighting.
4.  Names that play on the same first letter or sound are super catchy.

Some of the names I've come up with for my current fighters I train include the following:
"Jackhammer Jackie"
"Fists of Fury" Felis
"Hands of Steel" Saumya
